This is an inn that checks so many boxes. Good size, view, location, owner's apartment, 2 car garage, in a quaint village in walking distance to town, open year round, commercial kitchen, renovated, small bar, can be open to the public for dinner, can host small events.....so many options!
Since the seller purchased in 2008, there have been numerous upgrades to the systems and guest rooms. Most rooms have original hardwoods, sitting areas and are beautifully decorated in transitional style with a soothing neutral palette, and custom window treatments. The inn's abundant common areas make for a great location to have intimate events and weddings. But there's also room on the lawn for a tent. And the deck off the back faces the river and has a retractable awning for protection against the sun and rain.
The midcoast proximity allows for easy day trips up and down the coast or inland to explore. The twin villages of Newcastle/Damariscotta sits at the gateway to the popular Pemaquid Peninsula, with the Pemaquid Beach, Pemaquid Lighthouse and plenty of places to sit outside and enjoy Maine seafood with a view. The peninsula is dotted with beautiful little villages, shops and views around the bend. There's a boat launch right in town and a place to rent kayaks. The River Tripper takes guests along the Damariscotta River and offers sunset cruises, oyster and Champagne, and an oyster education!
The newer Oyster Festival draws crowds in the summer, but it's the Damariscotta Pumpkinfest in October that draws thousands. The pumpkin boat regatta even makes national news! It's a festival not to be missed.
The twin villages have a wonderful little downtown with some wonderful restaurants, pubs, shops, galleries, coffee shops, bakeries, ice cream shops, and a vintage movie theater. And just a step off of Route 1 makes it a fantastic village that sits off the busy main road, yet is just an eye shot away. It's a great place to enjoy so much of what Maine has to offer.
